Excerpt
INTRODUCTION Outbreaks of smallpox vary in their severity, and this is influenced by many factors. De Korte in 1904 described a distinct, mild form of variola, which he called amaas, and since then it has become well recognized that there are two epidemiological varieties of smallpox. These are variola major or asiatic smallpox and variola minor or alastrim. They give complete cross innnunity, one against the other and both are prevented by recent vaccination. The principal difference between them is not in the extent of the rash, but in the overall figures for mortality in unvaccinated people. The mortality rate in variola major may be 20-40% while that for variola minor is quoted as less than 1% (~ixon, 1962).
